Tornado < 2.2.1 HTTP Response Splitting

medium Nessus Plugin ID 59356
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


The remote web server may be affected by an HTTP response splitting vulnerability.


According to its banner, the version of Tornado installed on the remote host is older than 2.2.1. As such, it may be affected by an HTTP response splitting vulnerability that may allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to forge responses from a trusted server.


Update to version 2.2.1 or later.
